Covid-19 Update on access to public tennis courts May 2020

Following the Prime Minister's announcement outdoor tennis can now take place. 

Public tennis courts are available for bookings, and social distancing guidelines must be observed whilst using the courts.

The courts are managed by the Chichester Racquet and Fitness Club, with limited court availability due to some courts being closed to enable social distancing.

Bookings MUST be made and paid for over the phone in advance, please contact the Club on 01243 785664. Currently they will only be taking bookings three days in advance.

The courts will be open from 9.45am - 7.45pm, Monday - Friday, and 9am - 5.15pm at weekends.

There will be restrictions in place to ensure the safety of players and staff at all times following guidance from the LTA;-

  • Singles play only, other than where players are all from the same household in which case doubles can be played.
  • A gap will be left after every booking to ensure a safe changeover
